Members of Alpha Alpha are very well pleased with our new location this year. At present we are entertaining a full house, but we can always find room for any visiting Pi Kapp who is in Macon over night.

Despite the "repression," Alpha Gamma is making preparations for the annual Pirate Dance which will be given in February this year. The Pirate Dance is one of the dances on the campus at Oklahoma and is looked forward to by everyone. It is a costume dance and is given in the chapter house. The house is decorated to resemble a huge ship. The orchestra is placed in a box for'rd and the refreshments are served in "Joe's Bar Room" in the basement. We are expecting many alumni back for the dance this year.

On December 22, 1931, the alumni of Pi Kappa Phi who live in Macon were organized into an alumni chapter. Alpha Alpha has been trying for some time to get our Pi Kapp alumni interested in an alumni chapter, and we feel sure that the new organization will not only help the alumni to be better Pi Kapps but it will also help our chapter here at Mercer. Phillip Etheridge is earning his bread by practicing law with his father in Atlanta. Baxter Coke, one of the charter members of the dupter, spent a few days with us in January. Darby Cannon came by to see us during homecoming. Many other alumni have dropped by to see us for a few minutes. We are always glad to have the old boys back with us and the house is always open for any and all Pi Kapps.

Alpha Beta Alumni and Actives Celebrate Founders• Day By G. F. WEBER Pledge: William Ayres, of New Orleans, La., was pledged on November 28, 1931. The Founders' Day banquet was held at the De Soto Hotel. Truman Woodward, one of the alumni, officiated as toastmaster. Interesting talks were given by Harold Walsdorf, chapter adviser, and Clancy Latham, district archon. Every active member and pledge and several of the alumni were present in commemoration of this day that marked the beginning of Pi Kappa Phi. The first event of the new year was a dance given at the chapter house on January 9, 1932. The usual Pi Kappa Phi spirit prevailed and a good time was had by everyone present. Alumni Personals The alumni are giving us wonderful support in our activities this school year. We wish to take this opportunity to extend sincere thanks to the alumni and to Dr. William Clark, president of the alumni chapter. It is this spirit shown by the men who have gone before us that makes us proud that we are Pi Kapps.

With the opening of winter quarter 1932, Alpha Delta Chapter is without an archon. J. Dean Arbogast was unable to return to school this quarter, but hopes to be back in school during the spring quarter. In his absence, the treasurer, Melvin Klinefelter will take over the office of archon until the election of new officers. Brothers Bill Goodmiller and Karl Etzkorn have returned to school this quarter. The Mothers' Club, playing Santa Claus, presented us with a nice Persian rug and a beautiful bridge lamp. Both articles were surely welcomed by the chapter. During the 1931 season of frosh football, Pledge Pau I Sulkosky played as fullback the full time in every
